November 2016, Day 5, Ishiura v Ichinojo

Ishiura continues to perform well in his first top-division appearance, defeating much larger wrestlers with a combination of speed and technique. He reminds me a bit of Mainoumi, the way he keeps good distance from the grasp of his opponent before diving in at the opportune moment with a deep underhand grip. Grabbing the leg adds the leverage he needs to drop Ichinojo, and improve to 4-1.
